Empty

Columbia Pictures has picked up the thriller "Le Voyeur" for Will Smith and James Lassiter to produce through their Sony-based Overbrook Entertainment shingle.

Penned by Massy Tadjedin, the long-gestating project originally was set up in 2002 at Universal Pictures with Kevin Misher and Akiva Goldsman producing. The film centers on a man who returns to the Caribbean island of his youth and becomes a suspect in the murder of a teenage girl that was committed two days after his arrival.

The story is based on a 1955 French novel by Alain Robbe-Grillet.

Overbrook's recent producing credits include "The Pursuit of Happyness" and "Hitch" for Sony and "ATL" for Warner Bros. Pictures. Smith and Lassiter also are producing alongside Goldsman on Smith's upcoming movie "Tonight He Comes."
